Wednesday Wrap Up: Moving edition

First, let me say that Wednesday Wrap Up is a terrible name. Got a better, witty one? Leave a comment or tweet us. Second, I didn’t predict that I was going to be doing another one, but it looks like there is definitely more than enough content on a weekly basis to do a link round up. Got links to share?

Jeff Pulver kicked off his first social media breakfast of 2009 here in Vancouver. Jeff has a really gigantic network and is very prolific in everything from his travel to his blog postings or his Twitters. This wide network means that we get a much different cross section of people coming out to his events. Thanks for visiting, Jeff, hope to see a Social Media Jungle event in Vancouver a little later in the year.

I caught up with Ian Bell at the breakfast, and noticed that he’s kicking off a series of blog posts “containing [his] philosophies on web marketing, product design and conception, and of course Entrepreneurship.” This first one is titled How to Sell Great. Ian, let’s talk a bit more about kicking butt / educating this year.

Mike Volker of the WUTIF fund and VanTec Angels fame has The Skinny on Angel Investing over on the T-Net site.

We’re moving! Or rather, we’ve moved…this Wednesday was spent carrying the contents of our previous suite 350 down to suite 206. It went relatively smoothly, and we’re all moved in aside from a few desks, power bars, and an HDMI cable or two. Danny is apparently planning some sort of office warming party, but I’ll leave it up to him to tell you more about that.

At some later date, remind me to tell you the tale of trying to get Internet access for our new space. It starts by doing a survey of which large companies actually have pricing for business Internet services on their website, rather than making you wait a week until a sales rep gets back to you…

Innovation BookLastly, we have a lot of shelving in this new space. It’s time to start adding books to it. I’ve been waiting for the right time to tell you about a book that Pete from HearWhere brought in before the holidays: Innovation: The Five Disciplines for Creating What Customers Want. I haven’t read it yet, but I’m impressed by any book that gets carried around and pulled out in meetings. Any other books you want to put on your reading list for entrepreneurs and startup-ers? Let me know and I’ll get it delivered.

    Guy Kawasaki's Art of the Start is pretty good. And I think anyone creating new products should read Blue Ocean Strategy by Kim and Mauborgne

    I found your site thanks a Google search. You have done a fine work. And it’s really nice to read you. I’ll definitely be back! 🙂
